For me this a very personal and tough journey. I am going on two + years of actively working on these changes. I have had little to no luck doing this on my own. Also due to some underlying health factors I have also been deterred at times.
I am continuously telling myself to be patient, do my part, and I will reap the benefits soon enough. I have slowly come to accept that realistically, it may take a lot longer to get to where I want to be physically.but putting in the work and building that foundation now, I will reach those goals.
I am looking forward to being held accountable through this challenge. I now realize that healthy habits take time and and lots of hard work.
Did I mention I have zero patience with myself?
